The archives were wrong, then.  (But, thank you for doing the research
before posting. :)

The proper way to change recording parameters is to go into the
recording profile settings to change the audio sample rate there.  I
recommend you do so now (to ensure the profile is properly configured).

For future benefit, regardless of what you find in the archives, direct
DB editing is almost never the right approach (generally, only when
helping a dev do some test before a better approach is implemented or
when doing "unsupported" things--in which case, calling it the "right"
approach is arguable).  I for one would never "yell" at someone for not
doing their research if they were to post a question like, "I found
<whatever> in the archives saying to edit the DB directly.  Is there a
better solution?"

You'll also need to configure your ALSA appropriately to do rate
conversion for you.  See
